University of Utah follow-up: Plea deal offered in stolen medical records case

KSL reported on Nov. 14:

Prosecutors say they’ve offered a plea deal to two men accused of obtaining stolen medical records.

Thomas Anderson and Shadd Hartman each are charged with one count of felony theft by receiving stolen property and a count of unlawful possession of another’s identification documents.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports prosecutors have offered Hartman a third-degree felony along with a recommendation of no prison time. He also would have the possibility of later reducing the conviction to a misdemeanor.

The records containing personal information for 1.5 million University Hospital patients were stolen from a courier’s personal car in June.

Those commenting on the story on KSL’s site are clearly unhappy with the idea of a plea deal.
